THE CAUSE: CHIRLA

LACAUSA has long held a sustainable, ethical stance in the industry and now we want to take our cause a step further with a new initiative focusing on human and civil rights. We will be partnering with different organizations and charities throughout the year to create awareness, voice our support, and donating in hopes of providing resources for causes our team cares deeply about. 

This quarter we will be donating 10% of proceeds to local organization CHIRLA. 

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA) was founded in 1986. CHIRLA is a California leader with national impact made of diverse immigrant families and individuals who act as agents of social change to achieve a world with freedom of mobility, full human rights, and true participatory democracy. CHIRLA’s mission is to achieve a just society fully inclusive of immigrants. CHIRLA organizes and serves individuals, institutions and coalitions to build power, transform public opinion, and change policies to achieve full human, civil and labor rights. Guided by the power, love, and vision of our community, CHIRLA embraces and drives progressive social change. CHIRLA was formed in response to the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 which made hiring undocumented workers illegal, thus creating a situation ripe for worker exploitation and abuse which have increased since that time.
